An arrest warrant has been issued against a 20-year-old who allegedly voted for himself and his twin brother in last year’s presidential elections.
According to the police, the 20-year-old had gone to a voting centre in Yeroskipou where he submitted his vote, before asking police if he could also vote for his brother, which he was told was not possible.
The 20-year-old then went home, changed outfit, and returned to the voting centre with his brother’s ID in order to retry submitting a vote for his brother.
After registering and making his way towards the voting booth, a policewoman on duty recognised and arrested him.
The 20-year-old was then questioned at the Paphos police station before being charged in writing and released pending his appearance in court.
When the 20-year-old did not appear at his court case, an arrest warrant was issued, while the court scheduled the case to continue on 13 March.
The 20-year-old has already pleaded not guilty to the charges he is facing.
